The Grass is always Greener!
You have heard that expression a million times. Let’s look at it a little closer.
- Why is the Grass greener…Over there?
Because the caretaker of that yard waters it, fertilizes it…they take time to care and tend to the grass.
The greener grass has the solid foundation of good soil…Greener grass doesn’t happen by accident.
No…the grass is greener because it’s cared for…someone is paying very close attention to it.
So the next time you find yourself coveting that greener grass…ask yourself if you are putting the time, love and attention into your own backyard?
Reach…strive….become….grow….and enjoy the journey!
Start right now…today…where you are….with what you’ve got….and who you’ve got!
Soon…you’ll find the grass is greener….right under your own feet!
May you be living “On Top of the World”…Chris
This is a short and sweet version of what I might have said!
What an interesting word. Are you in Control?
“Of What?” you’d ask.
Are you in control of your thoughts?
Control your thoughts…control your circumstances.
Your where you are based on how you think! Clair Cook was a 45 year old working mom hiding a dream. Her dream was to be a writer. One day she decided to go for it.
She wrote her first book sitting in her mini-van during the wee hours of the morning while waiting for her daughter in swim practice. Her second book became a best seller and made into the movie Must Love Dogs.
Take control of your thoughts….and you’ll control your circumstances.
Claire Cook is a living example that it’s never too late. In fact she wrote the book titled: It’s never too late.
Control your thoughts….and you’ll control your circumstances on top of the world.
Here’s to your failures!
Seriously…Johnny Cash said, “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone.”
- Failure is best defined as a temporary setback.
If you are afraid to even try something because you fear criticism…then remember what Booker T. Washington said:
One Man can’t hold another one down in the ditch without staying there with him.
Get out of the ditch!
Leave your critics in the mud…while you rise up and conquer your fears.
YOU are not a failure…you may have experienced failure…but that was yesterday.
Today…tomorrow and from now on, you are a winner in training.
You might fall down, in fact you will fall down, but it’s what happens next that matters most.
Fail your way to the top of the World, where YOU belong.
In your life….you have Two problems…Not 20….not 200…just two.
Dr. Steven Snyder said so…and he’s a doctor.
You either know what you want, and don’t know how to get it.
You don’t know what you want!
So what’s your problem? Do you know what you want? Do you have a burning desire that you simply don’t know how to make a reality?
That’s an easy fix…YOU either need confidence to go for it. Or you need to ask for help and get started. Either Way…get started and your half way home.
Now if you don’t know what you want…YOU have a grand journey ahead of you. You are about to embark on a road of discovery. Keep your eyes open…and your head up.
Enjoy every step of your quest….either problem you’ve got…it isn’t a problem at all….they are both opportunities.
YOU are on your way to the Top of the World!
Are you present?
Do you live in the moment…or are you obsessed with yesterday’s moments….or the moments you assume will come
Kelsey Grammer said that prayer is you talking to God…Meditation is you listening.
Are you listening? Are you present…….?
Meditation is an ancient practice of being, being in the moment. Being quiet and listening.
If you think mediation is mystical it’s not.
Mediation is being intentionally quiet……and prepared to listen.
The world is noisy and getting louder by the minute.
So take a few moments out of every day a few moments just for you.
Get quiet……..get comfortable………….focus on your breath.
IN….and OUT……..Notice everything….and nothing all at once.
Be YOU…in this moment.
You will be sitting…ON top of the world.
Are you looking for permission?
Perhaps you want to write and publish a book…or start a company…change jobs or careers?
Maybe you are hoping you’ll get picked to do something…anything.
Author Seth Godin says, “Reject the tyranny of picked…Pick yourself.”
James Altucher wrote a book on the subject entitled: Choose Yourself!
Growing up, you stood in gym class waiting to be picked. You waited for the teacher to call on you….you waited to be asked to dance.
Your time is now……it’s time for you to pick YOU!
Stop what you’re doing…answer this question…and be honest with yourself:
- In your secret heart…what is it that you really want to do?
Now answer this: Why aren’t you doing it?
Are you waiting for permission? Waiting to be picked?
Ok…..then I grant you permission…and guess what…YOU just got picked.
Your cordially invited to the top of the world!
What are you waiting for?
I’ll be happy when…
I’ll start saving money when…
I’ll fall in love when…
I’ll love myself when…
I’ll live on purpose…and live my purpose when…
Someday I’ll….is at once the most crowded and desperately lonely island on Earth!
What are you waiting for?
The world is waiting for you….your gift…your talent…your purpose.
Why wait? Your place is waiting for you….on top of the world!
